Sky-Watcher Skyliner-400P FlexTube 406mm (16") f/1800 Parabolic Dobsonian Telescope. Sky Watcher patented FlexTube range of truss-tube Dobsonian models all feature collapsible OTA's, making them incredibly easy to transport and store, offering the ultimate flexibility for owning an otherwise large telescope.

After use, the clamps can be loosened and the tube retracted into a convenient compact size. Owning a large telescope has never been so easy.
